Perspectives from an Arden Shore Behavioral Health Intern

“My time at Arden Shore has put me light-years ahead of the other first year interns in my graduate class. Providing individual therapy to vastly different clients, each with their own unique situation, has been absolutely amazing! Developing a therapeutic relationship with clients and helping them explore and resolve their trauma is incredibly rewarding. There are definitely a few success stories that I will always hold onto for encouragement in my endeavor to become a high school social worker.

Collaborating often and openly with such welcoming coworkers is something that personally helped me process information more proficiently and further develop my therapeutic abilities. This internship opportunity has sharpened my emotional competency and professional writing skills, and helped me learn how to better convey what I hope to address/document. While Arden Shore was an intense first year internship, I am so grateful for the invaluable experience and knowledge I gained, which I will continue to utilize throughout my social work career.” -Grant Chapman
